Publisher Description

GOOD MORNING AMERICA BOOK CLUB PICK • A soul-stirring novel about what we choose to keep from our past and what we choose to leave behind, from the New York Times bestselling author of Wish You Were Here and the bestselling author of She’s Not There

Olivia McAfee knows what it feels like to start over. Her picture-perfect life—living in Boston, married to a brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon, raising their beautiful son, Asher—was upended when her husband revealed a darker side. She never imagined that she would end up back in her sleepy New Hampshire hometown, living in the house she grew up in and taking over her father’s beekeeping business.

 

Lily Campanello is familiar with do-overs, too. When she and her mom relocate to Adams, New Hampshire, for her final year of high school, they both hope it will be a fresh start. 

 

And for just a short while, these new beginnings are exactly what Olivia and Lily need. Their paths cross when Asher falls for the new girl in school, and Lily can’t help but fall for him, too. With Ash, she feels happy for the first time. Yet at times, she wonders if she can trust him completely. . . .

 

Then one day, Olivia receives a phone call: Lily is dead, and Asher is being questioned by the police. Olivia is adamant that her son is innocent. But she would be lying if she didn’t acknowledge the flashes of his father’s temper in Ash, and as the case against him unfolds, she realizes he’s hidden more than he’s shared with her.

 

Mad Honey is a riveting novel of suspense, an unforgettable love story, and a moving and powerful exploration of the secrets we keep and the risks we take in order to become ourselves.

"Jodi Picoult's Mad Honey was an incredible listen. Not only does it contain fantastic writing, but the narration itself is mesmerizing. The two narrators (Carrie Coon and Key Taw) bring a unique depth to the characters and their emotions, truly bringing them to life. The characters' voices each have distinct qualities that makes them believable and relatable. The novel itself is a captivating journey of love, loss and redemption that I found hard to turn away from. It's an inspiring story of hope in the face of adversity, exploring themes such as family dynamics and personal growth. With its well paced plot, raw emotionality and stunning soundscape, Mad Honey is sure to remain in your heart long after its finish."

    " This book was a good listening experience but unfortunately not great. The narration was great but I felt that the story was unimaginative and uninspired, with rudimentary dialogue and one-dimensional characters. It's a shame because the book had potential in its intriguing premise but unfortunately it felt a bit flat to me. It's worth a listen though - you may enjoy it more than I did! "

    " Mad Honey is an enthralling story written by Jodi Picoult and the audio is covered by the talented voices of Carrie Coon and Key Taw (both professional actors). It is a captivating exploration of family, secrets, and the power of love. With its intricate plot, fleshed out characters, and heart-wrenching themes, Mad Honey is an unforgettable experience that will stay with you long after it’s over. This was a big hit with my book club! "

    " Mad Honey is an audiobook full of emotion and thought-provoking detail. Jodi Picoult's storytelling ability really shines in this powerful narrative - the characters are deeply developed and relatable, while the story itself weaves together themes of love, grief and forgiveness. It's a must-listen for fans of Picoult's work, as each chapter brings with it an intense and riveting experience that I greatly enjoyed. "
